At 1:00 a.m. on September 16, Beijing time, Apple’s first autumn new product launch is about to begin. In addition to the new iPhone, product lines such as iPad and apple watch are likely to be updated in the event. However, on the eve of the press conference, it was revealed that there would be no ipad Mini 6 at this conference. To be more precise, the ipad Mini Series will not be updated this year or next. < / P > < p > there is no further explanation from the source about why Apple suddenly wanted to store the ipad Mini Series, but it may not be surprising to stop updating the product line temporarily. Although cook, the current CEO, took out many product lines such as iPad Pro Series, apple watch, apple pencil, airpods and so on, he was also regarded as “breaking the line when he is in power”. < / P > < p > opened the way for apple to prosper in the new century. After the popularity of smart phone products made users more inclined to listen to music on their mobile phones, with the removal of iPod shuffle and iPod Nano in 2017, it also marked the end of the era of iPods. Airport, which once provided wireless network connectivity, was discontinued in 2018, and even the 12 inch MacBook, which claims to be “carrying a book in a bag,” also stopped selling in 2017. < / P > < p > in fact, looking at the current iPad product line, it’s hard to say that consumers with different needs can find products suitable for them. On the contrary, many consumers feel confused about the complicated product models. And questions about the differences and features between iPad, ipad Mini, iPad pro and iPad air are almost endless on social media. < / P > < p > currently, the iPads on Apple’s official website include the 10.2-inch 2019 iPad launched last autumn, the 10.5-inch air 3 and 7.9-inch ipad Mini 5 released last spring, and the 2020 11 inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro released this spring. If you add in different colors and different storage specifications, Apple has as many as 34 SKUs on the iPad product line, which is almost complex. < / P > < p > from the perspective of product positioning, the iPad Pro Series uses the latest technology and is equipped with the most comprehensive functions. It also represents the most top-level configuration of its time, from four speakers to 120Hz high refresh rate screen, from full screen design to newly designed Apple pencil, to the most powerful a12z bionic processor. IPad Pro is designed for those who are inspired and willing to create at any time. They can use some simple operations to meet their daily needs, and they are not completely dependent on PC. < p > < p > as the middle item between digital series and iPad Pro Series, the typical feature of iPad air series is that it has the current flagship processor and flagship hardware. For example, the current iPad air has the features of A12 processor, original color display, full fit screen, apple pencil support, etc. Therefore, this series is a product with a relatively reasonable price, which integrates excellent handle, mature industrial design and mainstream hardware configuration. It is an iPad model suitable for most people. As an entry-level product, < / P > < p > digital series is characterized by its old appearance design and backward processor. By reducing the cost to the maximum extent, the price can be accepted by price sensitive consumers. In a sense, the digital iPad, like the iPod touch, is a stepping stone to the IOS ecosystem. < / P > < p > and the ipad Mini Series is a product that emphasizes portability. In 2013, when it was born, the concept was actually very popular with consumers. At that time, the iPhone 5S, which appeared one after another with the original ipad Mini, had a 4-inch screen, while the 7.9-inch ipad Mini was portable and entertaining, which was quite popular with consumers. However, according to some viewpoints, the positioning of iPad pro and iPad air is overlapped. If the iPad air is cut off, Apple’s product line will become the iPad Pro series that emphasizes productivity, the entry-level iPad digital series, and the ipad Mini Series which focuses on portability. However, this idea is not so timely after Apple attaches importance to the potential of the education market and the large screen of smart phones. < / P > < p > after entering the era of full screen, the screen of smart phones is becoming larger and larger. Nowadays, there are many models with more than 6 inches. Even apple may launch the 6.7 inch iPhone 12 Pro max. Under such circumstances, some changes have taken place in the competitors of the 7.9-inch ipad Mini. Its main positioning at the time of its birth has been occupied by the latter with the development of smart phones. Now, the scenarios that ipad Mini can cope with, and even better than, smart phones can cope with. < / P > < p > at the same time, with the strong demand for tablet PC products in the education market in recent years, the digital series of iPad has obviously begun to incline to this field. Due to the backward processor and appearance design, its performance in entertainment scenes obviously lags behind other iPad models. Therefore, if the update of the ipad Mini Series is suspended, Apple’s Tablet PC product line will become the flagship iPad Pro Series, the iPad air series focusing on entertainment experience, and the digital series biased towards the education market, which is obviously much more reasonable. As a result, the ipad Mini Series is no longer suitable for the needs of users in the new era, and Apple’s adjustment of the iPad product line has also put the ipad Mini Series in an awkward position in its tablet product line. Therefore, this rumor a few days ago is obviously not small possibility. 865 optimization is different? These mobile phones should teach you a lesson!
